This portfolio reflects my art nude photography.
There is a lot of information hereâ¦ apologies, it is turning into a bit of a book.
I am located at the top of the state...
but I often shoot in the San Francisco, Sacramento and Redding areas,
at times I even travel up and shoot in Reno.
My interests are diverse. Just like any photographer,
I shoot in several different stylesâ¦ several different genre.
Maybe this will describe my goals and hopes a little....
Graphic Imagination Studios - Fine Art Candid Portraitureâ¦
Invisible Light Photography â Explorations in Infrared...
At the present I am shooting primarily figure and environmental nudes. This is the area I am most interested in exploring, especially in Infrared. I am fascinated with the whole idea & concept of painting with Invisible Lightâ¦
Digital Infrared is a very interesting medium, lending itself highly to creativity. Using light that we cannot seeâ¦ everything takes on a different look, even in b&w. Everything takes on an ethereal quality. Skin tones become very smooth with an almost porcelain glow, leaves and most foliage become white, clouds stay white but have added detail and blue skies become very dark and dramatic. There is an element of discoveryâ¦ and of the unexpected.
This work is done mainly for the sake of Art.
Most works are done for the purpose of Photographic Gallery Competitions.
Are you feeling creative? Looking to experiment and try something new?
Mainly I wish to take my personal work more into the direction fine art b&w.
I want to take my work to bolder, stronger levels.
Current, On-Going and Future Projects:
TF* Shoots â Headshots & Comp Card Samples
(for BOTH of our real world portfolios)
Yoga or Dance â Nudes in Nature â Infrared Project
â this project requires finding the right coupleâ¦
(for Chicago Arts Competition)(see my âcasting callâ & âcouplesâ list for content)
I am looking for models that are expressive, creative, confident, open-minded, experimental and committed. I am seeking models in nearby areas (northern ca).
I grant, even with HSU across the street the model pool is limited in this part of the state so ânearby areasâ Covers quite a range, Iâll travel.
My shoots are very casual and not rushed... We might certainly have a goal or 'project' in mind but I am also very aware of 'the creative/inspired moment', these are magic. Most of all.... I am looking for models that want to participate in creating art.
I like working with experienced models, there is confidence and knowledge.
I also like working with models that are fairly new to modeling, there is both an enthusiasm and an honest emotive quality to the work.
I pay all models, everyone has expenses.
Even if it is just a stipend along with CD and/or a prints.
'TF-Whatever' can be a great part of the package... for both of us. If your looking to add to/or start a portfolio. I prefer longer shoots, half-day or full-day being most creative.
Do you need Content:
Do you have a personal project that you need shots for?
I am open to discussing a 'TFTime' where we spend time shooting what we each need and we each end up with our shots.
âabout meââ¦ A history In Brief
I hope that 'my work will speak for its self', at least style wise. I know, I knowâ¦ everyone says thisâ¦ maybe we all mean it. Please recognize that every portfolio represents âpast worksâ but should give some idea of oneâs âeyeâ & âsensibilitiesâ.
For me, photography has always been a very serious pursuit.
2nd generationâ¦ my Dad was a shooter, a hobbyist & professional, (he even went to Brooks) and Iâm his eldest son, so as a little boy I hung around my hero. Quality time with Dad was always trying to help in garage, the yard or holding a reflector. I grew up with it, but I was the only one to catch the bug.
Iâve always shotâ¦ I worked on cruise ships for a few yearsâ¦ camera went everywhere I wentâ¦ including underwater. Scenic, flora and fauna, Iâve shot enough of it for the time beingâ¦ unless I see a really good shot of course. Always as a serious hobby, for myself. Now Iâm trying to make a living shooting real estate, events and casual portraiture. It is to nourish the artistic part of my soul that Iâm here on MMâ¦ to network with other photographers and to connect with models. I find myself now 48 years old, going back to school, fulfilling my dreams and dormant goals.
I would like to add a lot of different styles to my port. I'd like to shoot more beach swimwear, some lingerie glamour, more fine art Bodyscapes both in-studio and environmental, some edgy fashion, perhaps some fetish fashion...
I am looking for a model who is an enigma.
Part voyeur, part exhibitionist, hiding in a shell.
